A Lebanese woman stands at the entrance of her shop adorned with the cross emblem of the Christian Lebanese Forces party in Sannine street in Beirut's southern Christian neighbourhood of Ain al-Rummaneh on October 7, 2009. One person was stabbed to death and four others were injured in sectarian clashes that broke out overnight in Beirut's southern suburbs, an army spokesman said. The spokesman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told AFP that the violence pitted youths from the mainly Shiite district of Shiyah against residents of the nearby Christian area of Ain al-Rummaneh.
